    Hi all,

    we just started to write UI tests, and we want to write them programmatically, e.g. w/o recording. With the setting of Automation IDs and the corresponding Find calls, this works as expected. On the other hand - this is the same result as with Selenium and the Appium driver. So I thought I could use the TTF to get a bit further.

    Now what I wanted to to is to get a content element and observe its datacontext. Is that possible? Something like

    var detailsView = SutSession.MainWindow.Find.ByAutomationId("DetailsRegion").As<ContentControl>();

    Bat as far as I can see, I only get the TTF wrapper classes as a result, getn't I?

    Hello Jörg,

    Thank you for reaching us out. 

    There is DataContext property in the context of the Progress Testing Framework but it would probably return a string with the name of the type - FlightViewModel. That DataContext from the application under test is custom and is not known within the framework. 

    The DataContext property in the framework is different than the one in the application under test and they could not be related to each other. 

    Thank you for your understanding.
